If in doubt find someone with far more knowledge than you and ask them.
Whatever it is, I’m bad for this since I work by myself lf and for myself, I rely on my knowledge and sometimes forget how limited it is.
With that, my wife and I of course been teaching our dog based on what we’ve taught ourself, until today we got to see an expert dog trainer at work. Wow.
I’m excited to get to learn from such a vast wealth of experience.
